Cadillac Catera Problems

Coolant and Oil Leaks

The Catera often experiences oil leaks from the oil cooler and/or valve cover gasket. The thermostat seal and/or the water pump may develop a coolant leak.

Engine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall while driving and/or will crank but not start, especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance.

The Timing Belt Idler and/or Tensioner Pulley May Fail

The timing belt idler and/or tensioner pulley may fail, resulting in server engine damage. Cadillac has recalled certain 1997-2001 models to replace the timing belt and other related components as necessary.

I love this car, ride, comfort and handling, and I fix it on my own, I don't trust this car to anybody. I had 4 cateras, and 3 of 4 I got in horrible shape. People never took care before, drove till brakes down, and then it costs a lot to fix at the shop.
